Table 4 Incoming students, drop-outs and graduate students in medicine by year and sex, 1996–2002. Since 1996, the number of women medical graduates has been very similar to that of men. Something similar occurs when comparing the information about incoming students and drop-outs. The number of graduate students receiving their degree has not shown significant changes in recent years: in 1996, 45.9% were women, while in 2001 this proportion was 49.3%.
